A secluded bush setting within minutes of Eltham's bustling hub.Here stands an exceptional Robert Marshall architect-designed large mud brick home, gracing a tranquil and secluded 1.4-hectare (3.5 acre) bush setting in the exclusive Green Wedge Montsalvat sector of Eltham South.
Offered for the first time, this much-loved family home of 35 years has spectacular unspoilt bush views from every room and has total seclusion and privacy, yet is approximately less than 30 minutes from Melbourne's CBD and even closer to excellent local schools, Main Rd shops and cafes, Eltham train station, bus services and medical clinics.
The house construction is timber frame of substantially proportioned recycled River Red Gum from a railway bridge near Albury, NSW, while the mud brick infill was sourced from onsite Eltham Mud - the finest available.
The generous proportions of the house are accentuated by recycled Oregon beams, over 100-year-old recycled Jarrah verandah posts, walls, first-level floor/ceiling, staircase and lintels, recycled Baltic Pine in the walk-in pantry, handmade 'Pinks' and 'Hawthorn' bricks, recycled four-panel doors and recycled light fittings.
Dolomite marble adorns the kitchen and bathrooms benchtops, and almost every room opens onto the bush setting via a verandah over decking around the house at the different levels.
Heating is hydronic and an open fire is a warm winter feature of the living room, while the house remains cool in summer.
The property is also attracts regular wildlife visitors throughout the year, which include kangaroos, wallabies, echidnas, possums, kookaburras, cockatoos, lorikeets and the rare Eltham Copper Butterfly.
The spacious and relaxing house features 5-6 bedrooms (all with built-in robes), two bathrooms, three separate toilets, kitchen (with Miele appliances), dining room featuring imposing void, walk-in pantry, living room, laundry, study and two linen cupboards.
